What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Markham

There are affordable places to eat nearby and it is close to public transportation. The parks are close by and great schools for parents to choose from.

There's restaurants, stores, hospitals, for departments, and highways within working 5-10 miles in every direction

Near lots of shopping and restaurants. More centrally located. Quite. New development going in around me that will be able to walk to. Close to highway for getting around city. Houses being redine

It has a suburban feel, but is located in the heart of the city. Zorba's, Petsmart, and Aldi are nearby.

I love the fact it is a quiet, unassuming neighborhood. It's also close to a wide variety of eating establishments, shopping opportunities, and main roadways.

Nothing really. I live close to main highway, bars, grocery store, post office and my friends and family.
